I installed auto glass for eight years and there is no difference in a shop or mobile install. A good company and tech will have all the materials they need and then some. Heck, my work van was better equipped than most shops I'd been to. We were given the latest and greatest tools and materials. I couldn't complain about that at all. That was Safelite BTW.
Never said one couldn't get a good install in a parking lot, just that my preference was to have them do it in the shop. It has nothing to do with tools; I just think an installer is more comfortable working on a car inside the shop than outside in a parking lot or driveway.
I worked as a Quality Engineer for a major OE supplier for nearly 20 years, so I am just a little particular about glass getting installed in my cars. Now if someone wants to replace one in my driveway with me looking over their shoulder and critiquing their work , then that is a different story.
